For goodness steak...

Hi out there!! I have a MANLY card to show you today!! Not very often do I work on anything masculine. Probably because I don't really like to... ;) My aunt asked me to make a card for her to give to my uncle for his birthday. This is what I came up with...



I'm pretty happy with how this turned out. Hopefully my aunt agrees! I also made another card (I'll probably show you that tomorrow...) just to give her a couple options. 


I love how the steak looked in the end. Yummy. :) 

For this card I used the From My Kitchen cart for the Grill and for the steak. I inked the steak with Vintage Photo and Worn Lipstick Distress inks.  I cut the tag from Tags, Bags, Boxes & More and inked it with Vintage Photo also. The patterned paper is from the Playtime stack by DCWV. The sentiments were from Take the Cake ("Smile, it's your birthday") and Kitchen Puns ("For Goodness Steak"). My twine was also from Pink By Design. I also used pop dots to give the card some dimension and a white gelly roll pen for some doodles. 

Hope you like! Be back tomorrow! :)
